Good leadership is based on a combination of talent, knowledge, and skills. At a higher level, extreme personal leadership requires passion, along with absolute confidence, a willingness to learn and grow, and a burning desire to excel.

Corporate Rise is for individuals with that burning desire.
Drawing from his own experiences and those of several of the most successful international corporate leaders in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, Dr. Curtis J. Crawford has assembled a set of eleven principles for extreme personal leadership. He outlines a clear-cut strategy for both aspiring and seasoned leaders to become what he calls X-Leaders. He shows how:

•X- Leaders have passion for developing and finding imaginative ways to inspire people to excel.
•X-Leaders cultivate creativity, are customer-centric, and drive their companies with decisions grounded in facts.
•X-Leaders are visionaries who anticipate the future and have confidence in the abilities of their people.
•X-Leaders convert the energy generated by chaos into better decisions, believe that the company comes first, and insist on teamwork.
•X-Leaders are role models and expect greatness
